Hello friends!
Today my father-in-law will be laid to rest after a long battle with Alzheimer's.  He was a wonderful man who served in the US Army and retired, then served in the Police force as a crime scene technician, and retired.  Always there with a smile and a big hug, I miss him already!  Today I thank God for the 25+ years I got to spend with him, and the hope I have to one day see him again in the presence of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

The Design Team have these beautiful card sets for you on their blogs under THURSDAY JAN 30th posts on their blogs, so be sure to go see each card shown in close up on their blogs.  Kary had each card photographed so you will see all hers here instead of a set.

Chere used Spring Sketches and Perfect Sentiments:
Deneen used Isaiah 41:10 (a  $3.99 Single Scripture Stamp set):
Jamie used BIRTHDAYS:

Wedding Card with His Little Ones: Bride stamp!

Hello friends!
Today I am sharing a card I made for a very sweet young lady's wedding shower I attended this weekend.  I used Inspired Stamps:  His Little Ones: Bride and Perfect Sentiments on the outside of the card, and colored it with Copic markers:
You cant see it in the card above, but I used Stickles to give her dress some lacy white color:

Inside the card I used Inspired Stamps Single Scripture ($3.99) stamp 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

Thanks for stopping by today...I have another card I will share with you tomorrow!

Valentine/LOVE card with HLO peeking through window + decorative inside!

Hello friends,
Today I have a card that I had a lot of fun making!  I used a window die cut from Spellbinders that was a lot of fun to sit His Little Ones: Heart-Holding Girl into!  I also decorated the inside of the card, as I love to have Scripture somewhere in my card in some fashion.  Here's the card from top to bottom:

 Inspired Stamps: His Little Ones: Heart-Holding Girl, Labelmaker Alphabet, and the 'LOVE YOU comes from our 1 inch Circle Sentiments which has over 40 little stamps on it like that!
Paper: Bazzill Basics Cardstock
Inks: Ranger Distress Ink Tea Dye, Momento black
other:  Spellbinders die cuts, MS flowers, Copic Markers, CTMH ribbon, Cuttlebug Embossing folders
Here is what the card looks like when you open it up.
Inspired Stamps:  1Corinthings 13:4-8 ($3.99 Single Scripture Stamp)
Other is same as the front of the card with the addition of CTMH opaque stickers in pink

Inspired Stamps:  Friendship's Flowers (for the sentiment)
Other is same as front of card along with buttons from my button jar :o), and a tag punch

I also stamp a piece for the back of the card with the $3.99 MADE BY...Single Stamp which has several stamps on it.  For this card I chose the sentiment "Hand-made with stamps, ink, love, and prayers just for you by" and then signed my name and added the year I made it.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Are you making Valentine's or Love cards this year?  Leave us a comment and let us know!

Scripture treat bags I'm giving away...maybe to you!

Hello friends!

One thing I've resolved to do more of this year is spend more time creating just for fun!  You'd think illustrating and running your own stamp line would mean 40 hours a week of time to enjoy stamping and coloring, but surprisingly, stamping and coloring are actually in the low end of how I spend my time during the work week.  So today I am sharing the fruits of my new dedicated time with you!

I found these cute wood-grain designed treat bags at our local scrapbook store and just knew I wanted to do something with them!  With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I focused 2 of these treat bags on LOVE and the other one I really wanted to use the cardinal stamp with (it's the right color!).  I use Bazzil Basics Cardstock, Momento Ink, CTMH: opaques, twine, and button, and Copic Markers to color.

Here are the individual bags I made...
I just love our 2 Scripture-Holder Girls (this one is Scripture-Holder Girl with pigtails you can find HERE for $3.99) and I also used a favorite Scripture from the Winter Sketches stamp set shown here:
 Next up I used the cardinal from the Winter Sketches set shown above along with a sneak peek of Psalm 9:10, a brand new 2x2 Single Scripture stamp that will be in the online store in early February!!

My last of the trio I have to show is the brand new $3.99 Single Scripture stamp, 1 Cor. 13:13 which has been very popular this first week it's in our online store!  And my personal favorite alphabet set, Labelmaker Alphabet (on SALE this week only!), I used to make the LOVE label on the treat bag:

 Here are all three treat bags:

And they fit our 2x2 and 2x3 Stamp Sets!!
SOO...I will be putting these (and a few others I am making) as little surprises in some of the orders that are placed today (Tuesday) and tomorrow (Wednesday).  And yes, they will have a FREE 2x2 or 2x3 stamp set inside the little decorated bag as my way of saying THANK YOU for all your support of Inspired Stamps! These really do make a thoughtful way to give a stamp set as a gift to a crafty friend!  You just can't get enough Scripture in your day!!

Have a great day and be sure to head over to the online store:
where we have just a few more days to save on a number of stamp sets:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'd love to hear about your crafty resolutions or what you think about these Scripture treat bags if you have time to leave a comment!
